Wilting Proteas

04 September 2012, 14:29
I have been watching the Proteas being thrashed by England.

After the first ODI I thought that the Proteas are now filling their rightful place in world cricket.

Unfortunately after the first ODI England figured out how to beat us, so the second ODI,they just beat us but in the last ODI they thrashed us.  I couldn’t help to get the De Javu feeling.

When our Primary run scorer (Amla) fails the rest of the team also fails.

I think the same happened when Kallis was getting piles of runs.  To add to our woes of failed batsmen England set traps for all our top batters which they (the Proteas) neatly fell for.

Smith will always run out of patience and eventually go on a wild swipe at a rising delivery and go out.

Amla you bowl a length ball coming in slightly and the ball will castle him after usually finding its way through.

De Villiers and Duminy will lose patience with a spinner and go out stumped after rushing down the pitch.
